Taxonomy details for Mammals (Class Mammalia)

Relationship: Deviation

World Register of Marine Species iNaturalist.org
Class Mammalia (parent: Superclass Tetrapoda) Alternate position Class Mammalia (parent: Subphylum Vertebrata)

WoRMs treats Mammalia as a child of the Tetrapoda which is a child of the Gnathostomata which is a child of the Vertebrates. iNat rather grafts WoRMs directly to Vertebrata. These are monophyletic groups so they should probably be added at some point.
